  1. Oddly just 2 again...my mom (who is my Filipino parent) loves to garden....sometimes I think she loves her plants more than me :(..... and I have been known to enjoy the Kareoke at pinoy parties... mainly cuz I everyone is speaking Tagalog (Filipino) and I don't understand it so I gotta keep myself busy somehow :heh:


    You are betraying the race! :angry: jk...the guy who's pretending to be the mom is Viet and the other guy is Korean, next time you should volunteer to be the mom and make a Filipino video ;)

  2. Check out the Collector's edition for the upcoming 3DS title.



    If I had a 3DS I would so get this.


    Heads-up for whoever's in the US: Hot Topic have lots of Adventure Time stuff, including plushies, t-shirts, and headphones. Labor Day sales on Monday, too!

  3. I'm actually very happy that only 2 things applied to me was having a rice cooker and giving left over food to the dog (when we had a dog) :D


    Although I now alot of that stuf applies to my Filipino relations :heh:


    Haha, there's a

    , check it out and see how you do with that! ;)

  4. Back in Ireland from TX...the roads look weird, the time is weird, people aren't as polite, it's cold, and I had to leave my fiancé at the airport :( Time to relearn how to sleep/eat/walk/drive/do everything on my own! :(


    I'm just being a drama queen really, he's coming here in a few months :)

  5. So I think this online dating thing may have been a good idea. Talking to a couple of people who I have some stuff in common with and it's been nice. The only thing that's worrying me now is if we get on this well online, we might eventually meet in real life. Thinking about that has made me pretty nervous. Obviously it won't happen for a while but not sure I could go through with it!


    No one can force you to meet or do anything you don't want to do! It's up to you, just think of the potential relationship or friendship you could gain...or possibly meeting a weirdo/serial killer (JK) :p

  6. If you are not a pussy, you will like this smoothie;




    There used to be a juice place in Aylesbury called "Juice Junction" and they did this amazing smoothie, I have tried to replicate it - I am very, very close. Its delicious.


    - Fresh orange juice

    - frozen yogurt (I've had to use yogurt+ice cream/banana sorbet)

    - peanut butter

    - honey


    Doesn't orange juice + milk make you throw up? Though I realise that yoghurt =/= milk... /Heathers

  7. Why...wouldn't you wear a seatbelt in a taxi? It's still a car. The taxis here are pretty good no matter what the time is, actually. The drivers always stow away your suitcase and stuff for you, and open the door.


    I've always thought it's weird that buses don't have seatbelts here...after all, it's still a vehicle and you will still get hurled out/at someone in the event of a crash. I won't complain though, I hate travelling by bus enough :p

  8. Thank you everyone :)


    Congrats Eddie!


    Doesn't your boyfriend (sorry, fiancé) live in America? Is one of you going to move?


    Yep, we've been challenged by that all along. Tbh I will probably move here, just need to work for long enough in my new job in Dublin to be able to put it on my CV and save some money!


    Btw Dallas is really nice so far...everyone is really polite and wait staff are forced to be super perky :D The weather is MUCH more tolerable than the humidity and smog in Asia, too. So far I haven't met any rednecks/gangsters/bible belt nutters/cowboys/gunmen yet :p But I also haven't been downtown yet...

  9. Yep, but the difference with fb is that you've met these people in real life first! You already know what they look like, what they sound like etc, i.e. is there a basis for attraction or not. Plus, IRL you can get a lot of additional information via body language, tone, facial expressions etc. Pure online just feels weird, at least via dating sites o_O It's like going to an online shop, "how many pounds of meat do you want?"


    My point is that Facebook is a lot more personalised than say, Myspace, and thus it's somewhat of an accurate representation of a person! Of course every individual quirk and mannerism can't be portrayed online, but that leaves something to the imagination! It's the same in real life tbh, you could get a false impression by meeting someone - they could've acted or spoken differently than they usually do, etc. Not pushing online dating or anything, just my thoughts! :)


    And yes I would...online shopping :p Though yeah, it's a bit dodgy buying fruit, veg, and meat with the supermarket delivery services.

  10. Anyway, online dating just feels a bit weird to me. I don't like the fact that you're dealing with just a virtual representation of someone...


    I disagree, look at Facebook...our online presence and communication is getting quite representative of our "real" lives and personalities. Of course you can craft a profile to represent yourself in a certain way, but you can do that in real life anyway! There's hope :p

  11. Haha, you should totally make a sig out of that. EddieColeslaw: 100% Neurotic Emo xD


    That might put new people off from talking to me tbh, apparently we haven't been doing much to recruit new members already...


    As for me, I don't really know. Maybe start putting forth all the crazy ideas I have, or not. My problem with life is that I'm a bit too aware of my own insignificance, hence little motivation to really do anything. It's not like anything you do is unique per se, there are always other people doing similar stuff. Thus I feel "nah, well good for them..." and slip back into my slumber of laziness.


    Hmm, surely there is something wrong with this kind of thinking. I mean yes, we are all insignificant pieces of cosmic fly shit, but that doesn't mean we shouldn't do anything...


    Ah now, imagine if everyone thought like that :heh: It's all relative - if you want to do something that will impact the entire universe, we're probably out of luck. In that scale, we are indeed insignificant. But ask your family members - you are very, very significant to them. Why not start closer and change their lives for the better? Or your community? Or the world? With the Internet, social media, etc. etc., the medium to communicate with anyone in the world, no matter how far away, exists. It's up to you to use it! Don't aim too high and get nothing done - imo if I can make a positive difference in even one person's life, then my life hasn't gone to waste. But of course we're all capable of much more than that : peace:


    If everyone is doing insiginificant, similar stuff, then the Awesome stuff thread would be empty :p

  12. This is probably disgustingly ignorant and ungrateful, but living to an old age has never enchanted me as I am a neurotic emo, so I wouldn't be sad or anything. I guess I would work as hard as possible to amass as much money as possible to live comfortably for say, four or five years. So work to save up and sort out my parents' debts, then quit computer science and do lots of part-time courses of things I've always wanted to study (fashion design/visual communications/language/philosophy) and travel ALL OVER THE WORLD and take lots of pictures and write lots. That was basically my plan all along :)


    Everyone: what's the rationale for wanting a kid? :o
